(en) US, Boston, Anarchist journal BAAM #13 - Four Arrested at Roxbury Blockade by Dave Goodman, from Open Media Boston (openmediaboston.org)

Date Mon, 03 Nov 2008 17:09:03 +0200



About 50 people, activists from the Ja maica Plain based organization City
Life/Vida Urbana, and their supporters, gathered in front of 76 Perrin Street in
Roxbury today, to try and block police from evicting one of the building's
residents, Paula Taylor, 43. ---- Six people chained themselves to the front
and back entrances of the building. ---- After a standoff that lasted more than
an hour, Boston police from the area B-2 precinct and officers with Boston
Special Operations, finally cut the protester's chains and arrested four of the
six activists. Shortly thereafter, workers with a moving and storage company
began removing Ms. Taylor's belongings and placing them in a truck. She told
reporters shewas not sure where she would go.

Attorneys with the local chapter of the Na-
tional Lawyers Guild observed the eviction
and arrests. Students and staff from Harvard
Law School also were in attendance and sev-
eral spoke with reporters.
Ms. Taylor's condo was foreclosed upon
earlier this year. The mortgage is owned by
Bank of America. She said she offered to pay
rent to the bank and move out once a qualified
buyer for her condo could be found, but she
and spokespersons for City Life/Vida Urbana
said the bank rejected that offer.

The fight for tenants' rights is far
from over. City Life and other orga-
nizations are stepping up to stop the
banks from taking people's homes.
